HP Touchpad CyanogenMod 7.1 Alpha Released

The CyanogenMod Team just released an alpha of their 7.1 Android mod for the HP Touchpad. The release brings forward a bunch of updates including GPU acceleration, wifi, and better touchscreen support. Each update brings Touchpad users one step closer to getting a stable Gingerbread on their Android.

 Here’s some info from the team on the 7.1 Alpha:

This first alpha has plenty of bugs, but many things are working at least partially, such as but not limited to:
  • GPU acceleration
  • 1080p video playback
  • Wifi (with caveats)
  • Bluetooth(no headset profile)
  • Touchstone dock support
  • Audio
Known issues include, but are not limited to, the following:
  • higher than normal battery drain, ~2%/hr while suspended
  • only partially-working camera
  • need to change the wifi sleep policy to “never sleep” in wifi settings
  • some app compatibility issues
